Using your own project as a tool to build your own project

Some projects have a wonderful self referential quality – the project can be used a tool to build the project itself.

Some examples :

Twitter : The company that puts out twitter used an in-house version of twitter to coordinate its work, keep each other constantly updated on what they are doing and where there were, and share general information.

Gaia University : This world-changing social pioneering university offers masters degrees for students who building new local nodes/branches of Gaia University.

Our Open Collaboration encyclopedia : As Alden, JJ and I worked on creating our Open Collaboration encyclopedia we would utilise some of the information in it to guide how we were to work together.

Our gift ecnomy circle : Our gift circle allows people to speak their  needs which other people then volunteer to help out on. There are different tasks that are needed to help grow our gift circle and to spread the idea out. I’ve discovered I can mention some of these tasks in the circle, and others will then volunteer to help out.
